Our mission at SPD Australia, is to raise the awareness and understanding of Sensory Processing Disorder in Australia. SPD Australia offers information to those suffering from this very REAL condition.
SENSORY PROCESSING DISORDER (SPD) is a complex neurological condition that impairs the functional skills of 1 in 20 children. People with Sensory Processing Disorder (SPD) misinterpret everyday sensory information, such as touch, sound and movement. They may feel overwhelmed by sensory information, may seek out sensory experiences or may avoid certain experiences.
Is your child very busy, a picky eater, not aware of getting hurt, afraid of swimming, having a hard time calming themselves or appearing to be constantly moving around? These are just a few of the signs that your child may have SPD. Review our full list of indicators and red flags for parents to be aware of.
